Story: The Communicator
Written By: André Bormanis
Series: Star Trek: Enterprise
After returning from his first visit to a pre-warp society, Reed discovers he has lost his communicator. He and Archer have to return to the planet to try and find it, because that is a huge no-no. This is actually fairly similar to what was the end of “A Piece of the Action” when McCoy fears he may have left his communicator on the mobster planet. So they head down there but the inhabitants of the planet have already found the device, and the fact that the planet is in it’s own sort of World War II kind of situation doesn’t help things.
There are good point too...Tucker cloaking his arm, the conclusion in which T’Pol points out you don’t have to leave anything behind to contaminate a culture is pretty solid...and I definitely found this one to be more watchable on the whole.
